The Flying Burrito in Ames


This place offers amazingly huge burritos that both taste great and only cost 5.25. That's right, for quarter more than $5 you can eat a wonderful built-to-order burrito creation that will fill up even the hungriest of individuals. They'll even deliver it to you! Try the soyrizo, it's great!

Recent Additions include vegetarian chilli for 3 bucks and quesadillas for $4.25

Price is over $6 and the amount of meat in the burrito is two ounces at best. My last burrito was so small and mealy [half the size of Chipotle or Panchero‘s] that I will pass on this place [even if I need something delivered] in the future. Go to Chipotle and spend the same $6 for much more [and frankly a better tasting burrito].

Totally admire the staff for putting up with a giant crowd of drunk a-holes week after week. They‘re always super nice and eager to help when I go there, love all the options, but sometimes there are just too many to choose from! If you don‘t know what you want, just ask them to make you a freestyle burrito with their favorite stuff on it, they love doing it!

Those complaining about the rice are just too reserved to ask for light rice. I, personally, love the rice, especially the wild rice. The veggies are a free add-on, they have a vegetarian option, and their ingredients are all amazing. Very reasonably priced as well.

Price-wise they are on par with Chipotle and Pancheros...and I love Chipotle, but Pancheros, no thanks!!! Oh and they deliver! I can get online, place my order and have it at my door. They even delivered to my house on a game day (I live very close to the stadium) in under 30 minutes. Those of you complaining about rice....ummmm light rice option, just a thought! While I am super excited about Chipotle coming to Ames very soon, they don‘t deliver, and sometimes I just want to sit at home and be lazy and have my food brought to me!

Fun staff, clean store, good food. Not sure why some people complained about too much rice, they use as much or as a little filling as you ask for. And they deliver. What other burrito place does that?
